Submerged: Stories of Australia's Shipwrecks


Submerged is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council membership and is the result of a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories.

68 shipwreck stories were nominated by 46 maritime museums and heritage institutions from around Australia with 14 of the most compelling stories selected to feature in the exhibition.

This exhibition is supported by Visions of Australia, a Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material with a particular focus on regional and remote Australia.
